JD(S) state president H D Kumaraswamy started his three-day election campaign at Chamundeshwari Assembly segment, here, on Saturday.

Kumaraswamy took out a roadshow in a special bus designed for the election campaign 'Vikaasa Vahini'. The bus started it's journey from Hinkal and passed through Bogadi Ring Road, Datagalli and reached Kotehundi.

The villagers of Kotehundi gave a warm welcome to Kumaraswamy and took him in a procession in the village. Later, he headed towards Daripur, where he addressed people at a choultry.

People welcomed the leaders by offering garland, showering flower petals and performing aarathi at different villages. Ranjitha and Nisarga, residents of Bardanapur offered 'aarathi' to the vehicle in which Kumaraswamy was taking out the roadshow. The villagers welcomed him by performing folk art forms such as 'Nandidwaja kunita'. The roadshow covered nearly 27 villages under Chamundeshwari segment.

Appealing to the voters to support the JD(S), Kumaraswamy said, "G T Devegowda will be made district in-charge minister if the party is voted to power. The JD(S) is committed to protecting the welfare of the people, including farmers, members of women self-help groups. We will also ensure employment for the youths."

Kumaraswamy said, "The party will waive off 100% loans availed by farmers and women self-help groups and will also establish industries in Mysuru district to ensure employment opportunity for youths."

Forced roadshow

The residents of Kotehundi forced Kumaraswamy to visit their village and take out a roadshow.

As per the schedule, he was supposed to reach the entry point of the village. But, the
villagers blocked the bus and did not allow him to move forward unless he enters their village.

Kumaraswamy alighted from the bus and took a minivan to travel on the narrow roads of the village.
